Bad Shift Sleeve

Bad Shift Sleeve
gears
These shift sleeves supplied by a German manufacturer are faulty in design, and cause gear pop-out issues that can only be remedied by replacing the sleeve. In these photos, the "cup" shape and lip on the undercut can be seen. This flank should be angled but flat to interface with the complimentary undercut on the gear's engagement teeth.

In these photos, the "cup" shape and lip on the undercut can be seen. This flank should be angled but flat to interface with the complimentary undercut on the gear's engagement teeth.

These photos are of a used sleeve, so half the lip has chipped off.

Brinelling
gears
Brinelling or false brinelling of 4th gear bore, the result of lugging long distances with a high torque engine.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brinelling
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_brinelling
Possible solutions include oil-fed bearing races and running loose needles. Using lower gear ratios for higher rpm cruising is a probable solution, since lugging oscillations are reduced or eliminated.
